Hi i was wondering if anyone knows if there are any visual tutorials out there on how to make a fondant/gumpaste rubber duckie? i have looked on youtube but there doesn't seem to be anything on there
here is the link for the ducks i am wanting to make
Any help would be appreciated
Very hard to find instructions for duckies. You might have to practice a little in advance, till you get it right.
This is the more detailed I could find. Tried to look for videos, but couldn't find any!
Polymer clay books or websites might have what you're looking for.
I recently made duckies out of modeling chocolate for a baby cake (see my photos).
For the body I just rolled an egg shaped ball and used my index and thumb to slightly pinch the tail upward. I did actually pinch some of the chocolate off so the tail wasn't as thick.
For the head I just rolled a ball and plopped it on the body. Then I just free hand cut the little wings and slapped them on the sides.
For the eyes, I rolled teeny tiny little balls of white. I actually put the ball where I wanted the eye and then flattened it. I did the same for the blue.
For the beak, I rolled a small oval shape, flattened it slightly and folded it over onto itself to create the look of a top and bottom beak. then carefully shaped it to look more triangular. Then I attached it.
I hope that helps!! Good luck!
